It is well-known that Mr Singh fell asleep in May 2004 when Sonia Gandhi gifted him the PM’s office. Medical experts had explained it back then as a childish excuse since Singh felt like a “scapegoat”. As time passed, the faked sleep became genuine sleep, and Manmohan Singh has been sleeping since then. Mediapersons who spent time with the sleeping Prime Minister in his bedroom to cover his sleep, reported that he was so dumb that he didn’t even snore once all these years.

However, recently, a report broke out that Mr Singh was feeling uncomfortable in sleep. His beautiful expressions were fading away and his face showed signs of restlessness. As the world watched with bated breath the live telecast of the PMO bedroom, the PM opened his eyes slowly, performed an agitated angdaai, and started looking for Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. He said that these two were his favourite characters in everything that took place in his beautiful dreams all these years. All his adventures in dreamland were ably supported by the two heroes, said a spokesperson for Singh’s brain.
A team of psychologists hurriedly set down to interview Singh, so that they can write an account of his long slumber. “People forget dreams very soon; and he must be having a lot to tell. We didn’t want to waste time, so started interviewing him straightaway. Initial reports suggest that his happiest dream was being elected PM some time in May 2009, and his sleeping face had the biggest smile when he dreamed of Obama being here, circa November 2010. In fact people say he never ever showed any tension, since people were continuously singing out lullabies for him. This week’s nightmare finally woke him up,” said an expert.
Reports claim “the Dreams of Manmohan Singh” have the ability to sell huge, if made into a movie or book. The book will have no mention of anything wrong, because the PM was honest and silent in dreams as well (the reason behind his constant neglect of dreams like the Nightmare of Thackeray’s Hate Parade and the Adventure of Remaining Raja by Ignoring Raja, which could make footnotes instead of chapters).
To celebrate the PM’s awakening, the self-dependent Twitterati declared the day as National Awakening Day, which they will celebrate every year.
